We stayed at Casini Ranch during a pretty good rain and wind storm. We decided to book a full hookup site since the weather was going to be bad. The full hookup site comes with a small pad of concrete with a picnic table. The concrete pad worked out so we could exit the Motorhome onto the concrete and not get so muddy. The hook ups without the sewer connections are in a little more private area but they are all in mud with maybe some grassy area if you are lucky. Probably great for summer time but not when it is raining. There were only about a dozen campers in the full hook up sites so noise & kids were not an issue. I can see how thing place would get booked up in summer, it seems like a perfect place for families with younger kids. So many things to do and it is right on the river. the general store was well stocked with food, RV supplies, fishing and camping stuff. Great place for a quick winter trip. A little on the pricey side especially for winter camping when you are not able to get all the benefits the park has to offer. Would return during off season since we don't have young kids. - RVingChick

ATT cell is a no, even with booster. Verizon was good. Wifi is good, depending on occupancy. Online reservation does not allow for discounts, so call if you have a discount available. Will stay again! $20 to $40 for honey wagon if you need it. Staff was excellent. Plenty to do in the facility and nearby. - Dp26

We spent 22 days in this lovely family campground while visiting our grand kids. Spaces are wide and well arranged. So much for kids to do - our grand kids loved staying with us. Bounce pillow, playground, ice cream social, pedal carts, hay rides are all available on the weekends. The campground sits in a big bend of the Russian River, so there is considerable river frontage, mostly devoted to some amazingly private tent camping sites. Sites with sewer are in rows, a short walk from the river. All pull-thrus. Some back in sites with water/electric that are really nice and private too. Laundry is nice, showers and bathrooms are well arranged, with toilet and shower in a stall and shred sink area. Recently updated. Camp store is very well stocked. Checking was fine- the staff is great. They identified a mistake on my charge and worked on it till they got it fixed. The campground is pretty full on weekends, so reservations are important, emptier during the week. Day campers are allowed to use the facilities (for a $7 fee) but even with that the campgrounds did not feel overcrowded. The entry points are closely policed, and friends visiting you for dinner will have to check in and pay an entry fee. We saw people in the entry house watching the gate until late at night. Makes you feel much easier about letting the kids ride their scooters and bikes around the park. The setting is fairly open in the center with grass between sites, but the perimeter sites are wooded and private. Much to do in the area! One tip- our GPS took us in from the east -Guerneville by having us leave the River Road (116) at Monte Rio and cross the river, then go 1.4 miles along Moscow Road, which was extremely narrow. Our trailer is small but it was still harrowing. A better option is to stay on the River Road all the way to Duncan Mills, where Moscow Road intersects the River Road to cross the river. Moscow is wider there, and the trip down it is shorter- way better! - Grants Girl

If you like camping in the dark woods, this is a good place. If you like RVing with cell service, WiFi, or TV, this is not the place. This is a private Camping Club, not a RV park. Paved and gravel interior roads, nice level gravel sites. Each site separated by tall hedges or forest. Some sites FHU, others 30 amp and water only. Most sites back into forest for camping experience. Only a few sites can get satellite signal and none can get OTA TV. There is no cell service and no WiFi available for 20 miles. Next to large river. Had problem with low voltage even when park half occupied. Small rec room and no store of pool or activities. 7 miles to Ocean. Very narrow and twisty state roads to get to area. Be careful with big rigs on county roads. Take highway 116 or River Road in from east, Avoid the Bohemian Hwy., lot of low branches. - Pepper Dan

Camped for two nights this weekend for the first time. Great camp ground, the kids loved it and the river is super close. We have been R.O.D members for 8yrs and love being able to explore new areas utilizing campgrounds that are part of our membership. We were driving from Reno and did not get out of town in time Friday to check in before their 10pm check in time. I contacted them to say we would not make it before 10pm, so instead we will drive most the way that night, pull over to sleep somewhere and be there around 9am so we could still make the best of our time there. I was told we could not checkin prior to noon as that was their checkin time. I questioned it since our reservation began the day before so what difference would it make. I was told checkout is at noon, they need to see what sites are available after people check out. I reiterated "you should already be reserving my site", I was put on hold and when she returned I was told that was just the policy and I could not check in any sooner. We left early the next morning (why drive that evening now) and because of the traffic the 5 hr drive took 10! We arrived at dinner time and were only able to spend a day and half there. Great park but the customer service sucks. The people who work there seem unusually unfriendly for working somewhere so peaceful. Beautiful area to visit however. - Anavisca

This was our third stay at this park. Very close to the ocean, nice walk down to the Russian River. 30 amp power, but sewer included. We use this as our week between stays at Thousand Trails Russian River and TT Morgan Hills and really enjoy our 'quiet' week here. Rate reflects our $0/night cost under ROD. - PugetSound

PROS: Just so you know, the selling point for this campground is its extremely close proximity to the ocean. Some sites have ocean front views that can't be beat, but these fill up within minutes of being listed on the ReserveAmerica website (and they are also $10 more than the adjacent sites that are not beach front). The sound of the waves crashing at night is amazing and there is a plethora of hiking and sightseeing opportunities both north and south of the campground. The campground itself was quite clean and pretty quiet (even on a summer weekend) and seems to be frequented by the serious camper and nature lover, not the weekend party crowd. The camp hosts were helpful and considerate. Should you have extra vehicles or your tow vehicle not fit in your site, there is overflow parking just a 1/4 mile away at the main parking area for Wright's Beach. CONS: These sites are TINY!!! We have never, and hopefully will never, try to shoehorn into a site this small again. We literally only had 6-12" to spare on all sides as we jockeyed into our site. If we had had a pull trailer vs. a fifth wheel, or anything longer than 24', it would have been impossible. Also, our fifth wheel is quite tall and the overhang from the trees scraped the top of our unit. Nothing serious, but obviously you want to avoid that if possible. It would be awesome if overhead clearance was mentioned on ReserveAmerica. These sites are also extremely close together, especially where we camped which was in a cul-de-sac of 3 sites, all with large trucks. After 1 day of squeezing our truck in and out of our site, we decided to just park it in the overflow lot. So in all, this is a perfect campground for tent campers and small RVs and trailers. Larger RVs can be accommodated in the overflow camping section adjacent to the ranger kiosk, but there is zero privacy or ambiance there. If we come back, that's probably where we'll have to stay! - MissCampsALot

This small campground is situated on a stunning beachfront spot between Bodega Bay and Jenner, just off Hwy 1. You'd never know it was there unless you read about it or happened to notice the sign (which we drove past, even though we were looking for it). I was able to reserve the last non-ADA spot a couple days ahead, but we were there in late December. I understand this campground is wildly popular and prime times sell out quickly, which is understandable to us now that we've been there.
All of the sites are great, some are just even more great. I read ahead of time that the only "good" spots are 1-10 as they are beachfront, but I now disagree and will say that 11-18 are also wonderful and just steps from the beach. 19-27 are fine, as well, but are in a lot across a small road and a bit farther from the beach. We were in 15 with our 23' class A and fit well. Longer rigs, over 30', will have a tough time here, however.
There were a fair amount of tent campers here when we were, in addition to 5th wheel trailers class B's and C's (we were the only class A, but we're a small class A), although tent campers should be aware of the fact that there are no showers at the site.
During our stay, a sign at the Camp Host's site said they were away Tuesday and Wednesday (and we left Thursday around 1pm and they still weren't there), so no firewood sales nor any service typically rendered by Camp Hosts. Not sure if this occurs every week in the low season or it was just unique to our stay. If we'd known, we would have brought firewood but we were campfire-less while we were there :(
We live in the Bay Area so we understand that the beach weather around NorCal can be finicky, most often worst in summer. Weather and numbers of visitors at the Sonoma Coast area are ideal in the winter, so we highly recommend a winter visit and your ability to get a spot in Wright's Beach is greatly increased, as well. Win-win-win. - 70s Kid

No hook ups, no trailer dump. Wonderful sites, great beach. We were treated to a perfect sunset. Loved going to sleep hearing the sound of the surf. - Trekking

Great overnight stop on CA Highway One between San Francisco and Fort Bragg. From the bluffs here there is a fine ocean view of cloudscapes and marine life. Resident harbor seals haul out on the mussel beds just below my window. Thousands of pelicans have flown north along the bluffs during my stay, gray whales spout just a few hundred yards offshore, and passing sea lions wave at the campers. This campground is a great overnight stop on CA Highway One between San Francisco and Fort Bragg, as well as a nice place for a longer stay. The location is remote and accommodations rustic. Several water/electric sites for rigs under 30 feet, plenty of room for tent campers, campfires, fish-cleaning station, and restrooms and showers. A road leads down to camping sites on the beach, and there is a little cabin with a view of the cove above the beach. For longer stays, there is Verizon landline DSL, and small grocery stores in Ocean Cove and Fort Ross (the historical park is only a few minutes south). Weekends fill up with inlanders, fishermen, abalone divers, and kayakers, so best to arrive midday Friday if you don't call ahead for details. Sites are first-come, first-served. The management is pleasant and accommodating. - Old China Books

We got here following a long rainy period. They only have 1 or 2 sites that would support the coach and not sink into the lawn. The roads are gravel as was the site we had we had, we had to add 3" of lift to get level in addition to the on board system. It has some low hanging wires so we had to pull in facing forward and stop short of the wires. This put the 30 amp plug at the front of the coach and our cord was too short. The park had a 3o amp extension cord and we made the hook up fine. They have no sewer or dump station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were the only ones there. The bathroom and showers were clean and the showers had great hot water and pressure. They have wifi that was pretty fast, I'm not sure how fast it would be when the place is full during the summer. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine too. The site we had was mostly shaded by some Redwood trees. It's less than a mile (maybe .5 mi) into town and all the usual services. There's a brew pub down the street that has pretty good beer and ok food. This is a great place to base out of to explore the Redwood preserves in the area and access to the coast and Bodega Bay. Notes: The $49 was a winter rate and did not include the 12% tax. If you come in from the East be sure and take "River Road" from 101. It's a straight shot and easy drive. Your GPS will probably try and route you on 116. I would strongly suggest that you avoid this route. When pulling out of the park use caution, the traffic from the right is coming downhill at a good clip and you can't see up the road very far. If we're in the area we will probably stay here again. My research showed it to be the least expensive place in the area and easiest to get to. - pumper9x9

We stayed here midweek and we had the park basically to ourselves, minus the three apparent full timers. For $43 I would expect there to be a dump on site. Be aware...there is NO sewage dump station. Very clean, used showers because there is no dump and those were clean with hot water. It is within walking distance from the town. Very quiet at night despite the proximity to Neely Rd. Was here three days before we saw the park managers, good thing we didn't need anything. - pamandtina

This park is in a beautiful natural setting along the Russian River. It allows tents, and so was a good fit for us, traveling in a teardrop. However the small staff is just overwhelmed. Bathrooms are similar to what you would find in a campground, not RV park, w/cement floors and basic facilities. Bring your own toilet paper. The RV sites have 30 amp plus water, no sewer that I saw. They are arranged around two circular glades surrounded by trees, many of them lovely redwoods. Sites 1 thru 5 look really nice and are shady. All except 1a are back-in. The first night we stayed happened to be the beginning of BeerFest weekend, and every campsite was thronged with crowds of joyfully inebriated young men, who celebrated 'til the wee hours. However, people were courteous enough. After the weekend, the park emptied out, and during most of the week we were nearly alone in the spectacular setting. Campers returned the following weekend but it was much quieter. We were told that the park may be changing hands. We will be returning as it is a perfect fit for us with a daughter living within walking distance. It would be great if someone could take this diamond in the rough and shine it up! Note: although the park borders the Russian River, those areas appear to be tent campsites, and actual access to the riverbank is a little tricky. Much easier and probably safer to walk across the pedestrian bridge and go to Johnson Beach on the other side of the river, where there is a lovely and child friendly area for swimming or kayaking. - Grants Girl

Perfect park if you like a quiet, isolated setting (we do). No AT&T coverage (yay!). Peaceful campground with pines and shrubs and spacious sites. Clean showers and bathrooms, friendly camp hosts. One dump station and several water spigots. Fellow campers respected quiet time. Trail down to the rocky cove; and 0.8 mile loop trail through redwood grove. Probably better for tents and trailers: no sites are truly level and our 34' MH caught some branches on the roof. We spent New Year's weekend here; we'll definitely be back. - brucemcdou

We really liked this campground. Very nice, clean bathroom/showers. No cell service in this area for Verizon or ATT. Very nice folks here. We were here 2 nights and would come back again. - TabStream

I loved this place. My wife didn't so much, as there is not much to do except hike down to the rocky beach. A lot of abalone divers come here. My cell phone didn't work, and there is no Wi-Fi. Exactly what I wanted. We spent 4 nights here and loved them all even though a group came through and over-camped their sites. Not a lot of trailer sites, but there is someplace for everybody here. I think the big rigs would have a problem finding a spot, but our 28 foot trailer found several spots that worked. - altamont

This campground is first-come-first-serve. If you are tent camping don't go to the bluff, my friends moved their tent twice because of the wind. My husband, my 2 dogs and I were in a cab-over camper and didn't have the ocean bluff view. Family and fishing campground, people were pretty respectful and quiet. If you are in a trailer or camper, the bluff closer to the ocean is great. If you are in a tent, it will be too windy for you. Site was clean. Freshly mowed and semi-spacious between camps. There are showers, although we didn't use them, fish cleaning station, boat ramp (but it looks dodgy without a truck or 4 wheel drive). Every site has a picnic table and fire ring, there are many port-o-potties and some running water but no electrical hook ups. No WiFi PERIOD unless you take the small hike past the fenced area of Stillwater Cove Park, and walk for appx. 7-10 minutes. The walk, either through the trees or along the ocean path, IS BEAUTIFUL. Many ocean views and tree canopies. We have 2 dogs and were able to walk them there for their potty breaks. You can walk to both the general store and restaurant. The store has basic necessities. kindling, wood, Benedryl, beer, coffee etc. You can walk to the restaurant but be careful, it's a dodgy walk. Food at the restaurant - stick to basics, we had burgers and fish/chips. - Oakland510

Was going to take our 5th wheel, decided on a tent, Memorial Day weekend and the park does not take reservations. Arrived on Thursday, found two vacant sites with a fire pit and a table. It cost $27.00 per night per vehicle, so our small group took the two sites. A large loosely knit group was in the park, they parked where ever they could squeeze in between a site, to be fair they were not exclusive, just more of them. People came in and the full sign meant nothing, if a tent or RV could squeeze in, it was ok, camp site or not. The sites are not numbered, the only thing the park staff was concerned about was the nightly vehicle fee. Way too many campers for the facilities provided. I did not use the showers, price $2.00 (unknown time) and the only restroom facilities were port a potties which were emptied and cleaned every day. The problem was they were half full and dirty in short order, the two rolls of toilet paper were gone in a couple of hours and were not replaced. A truck did come around to empty holding tanks, I do not know the price. A holiday weekend is always busy but "full" should mean "full" but the staff did nothing to stop people from coming in and setting camp where ever they could squeeze in. The crowded conditions were really not that bad because it was Memorial Day Weekend and the place was relatively quiet, but the port a potties were an unpleasant experience. The $27.00 per vehicle per night seemed to be the only concern 0f the staff, anyway I will not be returning. - 10-10

Great campsite overlooking the ocean. Whales right off shore and close enough for photos. Tons of wildlife and fishing. It has a nice store with all the essentials and friendly staff. It can get a little windy on the point but calmer back in the trees. We stayed in a trailer and we're very comfortable. No hookups but the location and views make up for it.
We'll be back for sure. - Mark Lower

Made reservations at the last minute without much research into this park. The location is a little confusing to get into as the direction on reserve america's website says "20 miles past Jenner". That is it. You are not able to book a specific site, unlike most other CA state parks I have stayed at. The park ranger tells me we drive through and find a site, then come back and let them know the site we want. The ranger was really specific - 3 times - that we were not to unhook our trailer until we came back to let them know what site we selected. Not sure why it mattered, but not a problem. We were in a 35ft travel trailer with 2 slides, although the site shows 31ft as the largest they will allow. I took the chance as I usually do and booked it anyway. There were about 4 sites I could fit into, so I got lucky this time. The site we had was double wide, but short (like 20ft) so we parked diagonally. This is the only park I have ever been to with wooden poles around all the roads and all of the sites (front to back and all around - poles everywhere). There are no hookups at all, and no dumps. I did not use the bathrooms. The walk down to the cliffs was really nice. I wouldn't stay here again. There are better parks in the area. Not a bad park, but I have been to better parks. - nunyadamn

The park is fairly clean, though the full-time camper section is a bit run-down looking. The manager was very nice and friendly, but the rest of the staff didn't go out of their way to assist. Our spot was under some nice trees that provided shade on hot days, but it was also immediately next to a busy road (River Road). The traffic was fairly loud throughout the day and quieted at night. Many of the RV spots were in a large parking lot with no trees, and very close together. The tent camping spots were all in dirt and didn't look appealing at all. There is access to the river, though it was down some steep dirt paths. This could be a lovely property, but needs some attention. Try to get an "R" site - these back to the river. - sail2blue

This is the only Good Sam park in the Russian River Valley and they offer Good Sam Discounts (10% off!) The restrooms were clean and there is access to a fantastic private beach. River Bend recently bought Hilton Family Campground, so the resort is better than ever. With an old fashioned arcade, General Store, cabins, horseshoe pits, basketball court, and an outdoor theater that plays kids movies at night. Also, on Saturdays in the summer there is free face painting and karaoke! The staff was very friendly and helpful. - User737

I would have rated this park a little lower If not for having one of the nicest sites, R15 backing up to the river.
There are mostly long term campers there while I was there May 24th.
They were not that busy but told me all the had for my 35ft MH was full service even though I said a 30 amp without sewer would work ( to keep cost down ? )
I thought the grout in the tile stalls were green, but at a closer look I noticed it was mold.
I would not stay here again. - twowoofs

This was 2nd time stayed here and first time they only had 2 sites w/electricity. Upgraded to maybe 9 sites w/30 or 50 amp. No sewer. Some sites are basically in the grassy field with a fantastic ocean view (All the RV sites/platform tents and many of tents do also). Scattered tenting site and/or platform tents throughout. Something like 378 acre ranch, with riding stables and guest house accommodations, too. Not for everybody, but my grandsons (25 & 13) loved it. Located just north of Bodega Bay almost to Salmon Creek. Really great camp hosts have been there quite awhile and are helping the new owner transition. Non-barking, friendly dogs have been welcome (don't want to scare horses). Trail riding is a separate entity, but they do great trail rides, are very helpful and friendly. Will go back. They do have Passport America, but not sure if any other discounts at this time. - 5er Pam
